Friendly Greek restaurant

The food is abundant for a great price. My wife had lamb souvlaki and I had the Arni Soubia, another lamb dish. Service was good.

Service fantastic ...soup great...portions generous and flavourful ...but give the fried food such as calamari and zucchini a pass...too greasy and mushy...so stick to the true Greek specialties and you are golden...handled our party of eight with no problem!

I've been to Athene's a few times and like the atmosphere there. We've been there when it's not usually too busy so it's relaxing. We've also had good customer service there. I usually go there because it's one of the only Greek restaurants I know of that serves grilled squid so that's what I usually order. However, the last 2... More

I have been to this restaurant at least ten times over the years, and the reasons we keep going back are simple - good food, big portions, good value for your money. The decor is fun - very Greek and not as tacky as some Greek places. The staff are accommodating. If you plan an event for a large group,... More

We dined at Athene's Restaurant during a recent visit to Vancouver. We had a party of eight and all had different dishes. While we made a reservation, we found that we didn't need it on this mid-week day. The staff was very cordial and sat us immediately upon arrival. After we ordered, a basket of warm Pita bread came along... More

I would recommend this restaurant for many reasons. The personal service from the owner Kostantinos. You really get that warm feeling. The food is comfort food like the Tarama, Caviar to the house made Hoummus and even the Tzatiki. I recomment the trio with Pita for appetizer and then move into a heavier meal of Arni Riganato, Lamb shoulder Or... More

We both had the baby lamb and it was terrible. Although there was enough meat the whole meal tasted like it had been prepared days ago. Everything tasted like it had been heated in a microwave. It was dry and very disappointing. How they had the nerve to charge us for this meal is beyond me! 25 years ago this... More

We happened upon this restaurant while in Vancouver West, intending for once to cash in on our Entertainment coupons, after we tried two other restaurants in the area that did not pan out. We liked the feeling upon entering the restaurant, the owner was very pleasant, the ambience with the interesting carved fresco walls and wooden floor was good. Obviously... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighborhood Profile
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
